How come it's 'tunda' here, not 'matunda'? Is it a singular piece of fruit?

I think you find something similar in many languages--cases where it's arbitrary whether you use the personal pronoun or not when the grammatical form of the verb already tells you which person it is. Do you follow me? It's certainly true with Russian and the other Slavic languages anyway.
